Well, I had a packing list all ready for September until the TSA goons came out with their latest moronic "security" measures. It was even all going to fit in one carry-on bag, saving me the trouble of checking and picking up baggage. Sigh. The best laid plans...

Struck from my list is Purell, as "Liquid sanitizers" have been banned. I guess I'll try not to touch anything, and avoid going to the lavatory.

You can now have 4 ounces of non-prescription medical liquids, which is a step up from the stupider stupid policy, but still outright stupid. So far I'm under that threshold, as my contact lens rewtting drops are 1/3 oz (realizing that now, those suckers are incredibly expensive) and the nasal spray I plan on buying and taking is only 1.5 oz.

Amusingly, "whipped cream" is specifically listed in the TSA's list of verboten baggage. Do that many people really board a plane with a tub of Cool Whip or a can of Reddi-Whip that they needed to spell that out directly? Whipped cream is highly perishable... it's not something you're going to take home with you.
